. vladimir putin signed the ban into law on friday. lawmakers there cite a history of abuse of russian children adopted by american families. many believe it was a retaliation about a law signed by president obama that poses u.s. travel and financial restrictions on human right s abusers in russia. good morning. you were in the process of adopting a 13-year-old boy named -- and his name is daniel from an orphanage in siberia. >> yes. >> tell me the status. is that on hold right now? >> it's definitely on hold because of the law that putin just signed in. but i'm ever hopeful that things are going to change. and i'm hopeful that better communication between both countries might cause putin to rethink the thing he just signed. >> how far along were you in this process to adopt him before the ban went into effect? >> well, i had already met daniel. i had lived over there for a few months in 2010 and spent a great deal of time with him. i completed my dossier. the region created a law banning u.s. adoptions before the country did. and that was just recently changed but, unfortunately, not

-president harry truman called the do-nothing congress, it managed to pass 906 bills into law. think about that as you watch the next report about one of the few things lawmakers seem to agree on, dismantling a little known office that's designed for one simple thing, keeping them honest. >> what is outrageous about it is you see members of congress on both sides saying they have zero tolerance for unethical conduct, but behind closed doors, they're quietly trying to kill the one body in congress that is trying to seriously go after unethical members. >> melanie sloan is director of c.r.e.w. or citizens for responsibility and ethics in washington. she's talking about the office of congressional ethics, the only government body outside of congress whose sole mandate is to formally investigate members inside congress, but many of the same members of congress want the oce gone. >> the oce has forced members of congress to take ethics more seriously. it has forced the ethics committee act and let all members of congress know they can't skate by like they have for so many years with unethical c
of the bill, but says he sees no reason not to sign it. the law is a big deal for many americans. nearly a thousand russian children were adopted here in just the last year alone. the move is largely seen as retaliation for a law president obama signed that restricts russian human rights abusers from traveling to the u.s. >>> our fourth story "outfront" tonight, arming our school principals. a proposal by arizona attorney general tom horn to give guns to school principals is gaining some support. horn says school shootings like the one in newtown, county, could be prevented if a school employee were armed and trained to use a gun. at least 36 investigators and three sheriffs are now backing the proposal, including sheriff paul babu of arizona, who's written, "the nra is correct. we need a cop in every school. we have a people problem, not a gun problem." sheriff paul babeu is "outfront" tonight. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, john. >> sheriff, i understand the attractiveness of this proposal, an armed guard, a school member training with a weapon. but let's look at the facts, go
. they're two very different things. nra members want commonsense gun laws. the washington leadership fights very hard against them. you're going to see that rift widening after today's weird performance. >> here's a bit what was he said from his news conference today, wayne lapierre. i called congress to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation and to do it now to make sure that blanket safety is in place when our kids return to school in january. is there any research or evidence that in fact arming security guards, arming teachers, arming administrators, would be an effective solution here? >> no. there's no research that says that putting more firearms in the hands of trained or untrained professionals in a shoot-out is going to make anybody who's sitting around safer. but there's lots of evidence that it won't. let me tell you a couple things. first of all, in my home state of colorado, at columbine there was a deputy sheriff there, there was another security guard nearby, they were not able to stop wh
. but instead it chose to defend extreme pro gun positions that aren't even popular among the law-abiding gun owners it represents. the national rifle association is speaking out on the massacre, saying the answer is to deploy armed guards at schools. and they're not the only ones joining the debate. >> columbine. >> virginia tech. >> tucson. >> aurora. >> ft. hood. >> oak creek. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> how many more? >> how many more? >> how many more colleges? >> how many more classrooms? >> how many more movie theatres? >> how many more houses of faith? >> how many more shopping malls? >> how many more street corners? >> how many more? >> how many more? >> enough. >> enough. >> enough. >> well, this group of artists joined mayors against illegal guns in a demand and planned campaign. it was started by new york city mayor michael bloomberg and thomas nunino in 2006 but gaining momentum. susan candiotti joins me from new york. as i read about these funerals and the children, the details, it's just still overwhelming. that press conference yesterday, it was the most

arrested. protesters want tougher laws for rape and crimes against women. there were 572 reported rapes just last year and more than 600 reported so far this year. >>> americans may no long er be able to adopt children from russia. president vad vladimir putin signed a bill today. >> translator: the vast majority of russian citizens are very negative about foreigners adopting our children. we need to do it our oust ourselves. we need ourselves to stimulate, bringsing to the family orphans or those left without parental care. >> the law which goes into effect around the corner on january 1st could affect hundreds of american families seeking to adopt or on the palt to adoption because this will affect future adoptions and those currently in progress. 1,000 russian children were adopted by americans just last year. putin's move is seen as retaliation for a new u.s. law that imposes travel and financial restrictions on russians who have carried out human rights violations. the state department released this statement in reaction to the law. "we deeply regret russia's passage of a law endin
as much by politics as by law. is gun culture driving politics, politics driving gn culture? does it change? does the second amendment change from here? >> it sure does. the second amendment itself has not changed more than 200 years. but the interpretation of the second amendment has changed dramatically. for more than 100 years, the interpretation was that state militias, that mysterious first clause, they were the only ones who had the right to bear and keep arms. in 2008 the supreme court of the united states said individuals have a right to keep and bear arms. they were talking about handguns in the home. how expansive that right is remains somewhat murky at this point. the idea that you have a constitutional right to bear arms is a legitimate one for better or worse now. that's something that politicians will have to take into consideration as they decide what to do. >> you've pointed to incidents like what happened here in newtown, what happened in australia, scotland and how they moved quickly and changed their laws. >> very quickly. in 1996, children as young as those who
at new york state's law, it's a concealed to carry license which means you're not supposed to let anyone know you actually have a gun on your person, and if you do or it's brandishing, unless you absolutely need deadly physical force, you could lose your license through revocation. what the paper just did is do the opposite of what the law tells the pistol licensee to do and now everybody knows where they are and put a lot of families in danger by doing so. >> on the other hand, this is public information. it can be gotten by anyone who goes through the trouble. the paper i guess made it easier. >> they did, made it quite easier. i believe our forefathers when they wrote that in early 1900s here in new york state they weren't counting on google earth to actually come into play with that. the list can be published, but not in such a manner. 40% of that list is retired law enforcement. i actually saw some women who i knew that have order of protections from their spouses and they were really beaten pretty badly and now their lives are in danger because they printed their names. that and la
is adamant new gun laws are not the answer to stemming violence, down slightly from a year ago. on the other hand, a poll by "the washington post" and abc shows 52% of americans favor banning semiautomatic weapons, 59% support banning high-capacity clips. "outfront" tonight, roland and margaret. good to see you guys. margaret, i know that you grew up hunting, your dad took you hunting in colorado. one of the sea changes we've seen in the wake of this shooting is senators like joe manchin, mike warner, saying i've changed my mind, joe manchin saying, i've never hunted with more than three shells in a clip. why isn't this a conversation we can be having more broadly? and getting republican senators on board? >> i would also point you to the democratic governor of colorado in the wake of the aurora shootings also said, i'm not sure if an assault weapons ban would have stopped james woolsly in this mass certificate in colorado. an assault weapons ban wouldn't have stopped him. it's not just a republican or democratic issue. in 1994, the democrats took a huge political walloping -- do you like th
from the national rifle association, making clear today its opposition to any new gun laws in the wake of the connecticut shooting. the group's ceo is standing by remarks he made at an event on friday. cnn's barbara starr on the debate that dominated the sunday morning talk shows. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> how many more? >> reporter: performers and artists joining with 800 mayors calling for a plan to end gun violence. but wayne lapierre, the chief executive officer of the nra made clear on nbc's "meet the press" that his organization will oppose legislation adding new restrictions to the sale of weapons or high capacity ammunition magazines. >> i know there's a media machine in this country that wants to blame guns every time something happens. i know there's an anti-second amendment industry in this town. i know there are political leaders that for 20 years always try to say it's because americans own guns. i'm telling you what i think will make people safe, and what will make mom and dad feel better, is that when they drop their kid off at school in january,
constitution adjusts the leadership positions and clarifies how the country's laws are made. we'll know the final results in just a few hours. >>> hours ago hawaii senator daniel inouye was laid to rest. he represented hawaii in washington for more than five decades, ever since hawaii became a state in 1959. the 88-year-old senator was also a war hero. he lost his arm in world war ii. president obama and the first lady attended today's funeral in hawaii. obama has said inouye was his earliest political inspiration. >>> we are not going to budge. that's the message from the national rifle association. making it clear today its opposition to any new gun laws in the wake of the connecticut shooting. the group's ceo is standing by remarks he made at an event on friday. cnn's barbara starr has more on the debate that dominated the sunday morning talk shows. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> how many more? >> reporter: performers and artists now joining with 800 mayors calling for a plan to end gun violence. but wayne lapierre, the chief executive officer and public face of t
this shows a lack of judgment by the newspaper, and i think that we should not be stigmatizing every law-abiding gun owner out there and i think particularly after newtown, let's engage in a conversation about sensible policies that going owners, including probably many of these people whose names were printed in the paper and most americans agree on, like background checks for all gun sales and getting military style assault weapons off the streets and other sensible policies. >> the interesting thing about this, apparently these gun permits are for handguns only because you can't find out who owns let's say a semiautomatic assault rifle. those things aren't made public. why is that? >> well, that is a serious problem, the gun lobby has exerted its pressure to keep a lot of very important crime gun data secret, for example, there are restrictions which now prevent us from finding out which gun dealers supply most crimin criminals. gun lobbyists shut it down with friends in congress which protects corrupt gun dealers. most law-abiding gun dealers would like to expose the bad ones. >> so
and better from my perspective, he's not the nominee to begin with. >> rush limbaugh did call a law student a slut and a prostitute for wanting to have insurance covered for her contraception. i presume you wouldn't view what as absurd or entertaining, you'd view that as pretty offensive. >> of course not. of course, as i said before. i want to spend my time talking about how we can grow the economy. what i'd like to talk about which is offensive, which is governor romney out there for almost a year telling the people in the republican primary that he never advocated that romneycare would be a federal model, that he never advocated for an individual mandate that government at the federal level require people to buy insurance. now we find on several occasions just in the past week article after article, interview after interview where governor romney did just that in 2009. now, to me that's offensive. >> is he a liar then? >> well, this goes to the snobbish issue, which is he clearly did not tell the truth, that you don't necessarily go and, you know, accuse the person on a personal level, y
the violence in connecticut, colorado and other places, but steered the conversation away from guns and gun law. indeed he lambasted officials who want to restrict guns from schools. >> in doing so they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. >> the nra has blood on its hands. >> reporter: despite twice being interrupted by protesters, lapierre went on to blame the media. >> a child growing up in america today witnesses 16,000 murders and 200,000 acts of violence by the time he or she reaches the ripe old age of 18. and does anybody really believe that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school? he's already identified at this very moment. >> reporter: he announced plans for what he calls a national school shield program, to recruit and train volunteers to thwart such attacks. can you answer one question, mr. keen? but details on how that might work remain unclear. for all their statements, nra officials are still not answering questions. some of this is almost certainly a reminder to congress members all

is considered a payback of sorts for an american law that was passed two weeks ago. that law puts financial restrictions on russians accused of human rights violations, bans them from also traveling to the united states. i want to bring in our matthew chance from london. and matthew, of course, you were a correspondent in moscow for a very long time here. it seems at least there's a split. you've got russia's foreign minister who actually criticized putin before he signed this ban. so what is going on here? is this a power play? and is this something that is actually going to take effect? >> i mean, you're right. there has been a very rare split in the russian political elite about this issue. there's been some criticism that was leaked to the press in russia about how some officials including the foreign minister concerned about what the impact this may have. also an opposition newspaper in russia has issued a petition, saying the law should not been enacted. that's had more than 100,000 signatures. obviously, it's something that divides russian society. but make no mistake, it is a power
the national rifle association's opposition to any new gun laws, president obama insists an action is not an option when it comes to protecting children. while democrats and republicans are upset over the massacre in newtown, the country remains polarized on the issue of gun control. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is in washington. we know that some lawmakers came forward and expressed interest in introducing legislation about gun control, but i guess the question is will they really in the new year? >> reporter: it really -- the reaction, especially and even among republicans to the nra idea is sort of muted at best. it's not a lot of enthusiasm on capitol hill for the idea of the federal government stepping in and endorsing the idea of all schools having armed police officers. never mind funding it. listen to a couple of senators, starting with a republican. >> we had an armed guard in columbine. we had an assault ban. none of it worked. we're talking about preventing mass murder from nontraditional criminals. people who are not traditional criminals, who are

of more gun laws, the opposite of the nra, also offer this point. they remind everyone, there was an armed security officer at columbine high school the day of that 1999 massacre and that person could not stop that event. what they say is controlling gun violence now requires a package of solutions, mental health solutions for those who are mentally ill, gun laws and potentially more for schools a package of solutions beyond the schoolhouse door. miguel? >> a tough question in washington but what can only be described by a rant on friday by wayne lapierre what is your sense of it? the tone of it the fact he blamed anybody but didn't see any role for the nra to really play in this, how did that play, you think, in washington? >> reporter: well, the media machine that he referenced, i think you can well imagine, a good deal of the press corps found themselves perhaps scratching their head about that one. some people, of course, do support the nra and mr. lapierre. i think the real question, as you say, is one now of political muscle. will those who want to see more gun laws enacted have the
. >> in ten days we face a deadline. in ten days under current law, tax rates are scheduled to rise on most americans. and even though democrats and republicans are arguing about whether those rates should go up for the wealthiest individuals, all of us, every single one of us agrees that tax rates shouldn't go up for the other 98% of americans, which includes 97% of small businesses. >> let's check in now with cnn's emily schmitt in washington. the president made this surprise late appearance yesterday. he urged republicans to approve, i guess what you might consider a stripped down deal. this all happened around dinner time. so a lot of folks might not have seen it. give us the details. what is he proposing? >> well, i have to tell you, a few minutes ago, president obama landed in hawaii, 72 degrees there was the temperature on the ground. certainly warmer than it is in washington, certainly warmer than the political climate that president obama left behind here here in washington. it was a strip down agreement. he basically is saying we have to come up with some solution to help the majo
state law which took effect at midnight. steven bridges and michael snell said it's still very surreal to them. voters in maine, maryland and washington state all approved same-sex marriage last month. gay marriage is already legal in d.c. and six other states. >>> it is a dream come true for a nigerian immigrant. in a rare move, president obama sibld into law a private bill granting victor chuckwiki permanent residency. it's the only such bill to be approved in the last two years. the recent college grad came to the u.s. 11 years to go to undergo treatment for rare life threatening facial tumors. he had been living in michigan on an expired visa and will now head to medical school. >>> a russian airliner slid off a runway and smashed outside moscow today. four of the eight crew members on board were killed as the plane splintered into three pieces. no passengers on board were -- no passengers were on board, and no one on the highway was injured. the jet is about as big as a 757. it was run by the russian airline red wings. the plane was arriving from the czech republic when it oversho
in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will
or anybody else for that matter. there is a law that goes into effect in ten days that raises taxes on millionaires, small businesses filing as millionaires and everybody else. boehner's bill tried to stop that for everybody else. offa lifeguard sees ten swimmers drowning off of his beach and can only reach nine of them to save them, it doesn't mean that he's drowned the tenth one. all in nonsense somehow boehner was trying to raise taxes is just that, nonsense. >> your point is if you are anti-tax, vote for this bill. >> he was trying to stop a massive tax increase and unfortunately, some of my colleagues didn't see it that way. >> how bad is it up there? americans look at what's happening in washington right now and want both sides to get to work. i know it can be very collegial up there but in these meetings behind closed doors, what's the atmosphere like? >> miguel, bad process creates bad policy. and what we're watching today is extraordinarily bad process. for example, the president is not supposed to be part of the negotiations of the legislative branch. he is a separate bran
. for some states, it's a day that a series of new laws are going to take effect. let me get you clued in here. in california, talking more than 800 new laws, including one requiring apartments and condos to install carbon monoxide detectors. separately, employers will no longer be able to ask job applicants for log ins to social media accounts, such as facebook and twitter. and the increase between 28 cents and 37 cents per hour affects more than 1 million low-income earners. thanks to laws that have lower minimum wage to keep price. and the price of stamps is set to go up? e, again, by a penny, on january 27th, which brings the price of sending first-class mail to 46 cents. >>> well, the senate has also approved a five-year extension of the foreign intelligence surveillance act allowinging the government to eavesdrop on overseas phone calls and e-mails from potential terrorists. they say it's protected us from more attacks like 9/11. others argue the bill could be abused. the bill is being sent to president obama and he is expected to sign it. >>> and the state's same-sex marriage la
